Bill C51 will criminalize Vitamins Minerals & Herbs making them Illegal in Canada.Critical JunctureBill C-51: We Need Your Help On This OneB28156 / Mon, 5 May 2008 00:59:17 / Human RightsCanada’s C-51 Law May Outlaw 60% of Natural Health Products; Big Pharma Pushing toCriminalize Supplementsby Mike Adams(NaturalNews)A new law being pushed in Canada by Big Pharma seeks to outlaw up to 60 percent ofnatural health products currently sold in Canada, even while criminalizing parentswho give herbs or supplements to their children. The law, known as C-51, wasintroduced by the Canadian Minister of Health on April 8th, 2008, and it proposessweeping changes to Canada’s Food and Drugs Act that could have devastatingconsequences on the health products industry.Among the changes proposed by the bill are radical alterations to key terminology,including replacing the word “drug” with “therapeutic product” throughout the Act,thereby giving the Canadian government broad-reaching powers to regulate the saleof all herbs, vitamins, supplements and other items. With this single languagechange, anything that is “therapeutic” automatically falls under the Food and DrugAct. This would include bottled water, blueberries, dandelion greens andessentially all plant-derived substances.The Act also changes the definition of the word “sell” to include anyone who givessuch therapeutic products to someone else. So a mother giving an herb to herchild, under the proposed new language, could be arrested for engaging in the saleof unregulated, unapproved “therapeutic substances.” Learn about more of thesefreedom-squashing changes to the law at the Stop51.com website:http://www.stopc51.comNew enforcement powers allow Canadian government to seize your home or businessAt the same time that C-51 is outlawing herbs, supplements and vitamins, it wouldgrant alarming new “enforcement” powers to the thugs enforcement agents who claimto be “protecting” the public from dangerous unapproved “therapeutic agents” like,say, dandelion greens. As explained on the www.Educate-Yourself.org website((http://educate-yourself.org/cn/canadian…), the C-51 law would allow the Canadiangovernment’s thugs enforcement agents to:• Raid your home or business without a warrant• Seize your bank accounts• Levy fines up to $5 million and a jail terms up to 2 years for merely selling anherb• Confiscate your property, then charge you storage fees for the expense involvedin storing all the products they stole from youC-51 would even criminalize the simple drying of herbs in your kitchen to be usedin an herbal product, by the way. That would now be categorized as a “controlledactivity,” and anyone caught engaging in such “controlled activities” would bearrested, fined and potentially jailed. Other “controlled activities” includelabeling bottles, harvesting plants on a farm, collecting herbs from your backyard, or even testing herbal products on yourself! (Yes, virtually every activityinvolving herbs or supplements would be criminalized…)There’s more, too. C-51 is the Canadian government’s “final solution” for thehealth products industry. It’s a desperate effort to destroy this industry that’s
threatening the profits and viability of conventional medicine. Natural medicineworks so well — and is becoming so widely used — that both the Canadian andAmerican governments have decided to “nuke” the industries by passing new lawsthat effectively criminalize anyone selling such products. They simply cannottolerate allowing consumers to have continued access to natural products. To do sowill ultimately spell the destruction of Big Pharma and the outdated, corrupt andcriminally-operated pharmaceutical industry that these criminally-operatedgovernments are trying to protect.Join the rally to protest C-51On May 9th, 2008, Canadian citizens will be gathering at the Calgary Federal Courtto protest C-51 and help protect their access to natural health products. Call 1-888-878-3467 to learn more, or visit the action page of Health Canada Exposed at:http://www.stopc51.com/c51/what_you_can_do.aspNaturalNews is looking to hire someone with a good video camera to film the event.We’ll gladly pay you to video tape this and send us the resulting file, which wewill edit and then post for NaturalNews readers. If you have a video camera (withgood audio, hopefully) and can attend the May 9th rally, please contact us at(U.S.) 520-232-9300 for details. If you do film there, be sure to use the camerabuddy system, where you have somebody in the distance filming YOU with the camera,so that if Canadian law enforcement thugs decide to assault you and steal yourvideo camera in order to censor the event, then somebody else in the distance hasTHAT on video! You got that? So there are two cameras working, camera A is filmingthe rally, and it’s very close to the action. Camera B is set back farther fromthe scene, and it’s filming the person holding camera A. This is standardoperating practice for filming such events, and it makes it very difficult forgovernment thugs to shut down the video. Often, the person filming with camera Bis in a car somewhere, or filming covertly so that they don’t attract attention.Zoom lenses help a lot.In any case, if you manage to get some video of this event, then we’d be thrilledto share it with NaturalNews readers. And like I said, we’ll pay for footage, socall us for details. Together, we can help spread the word about this importantrally for health freedom in Canada.Learn more: http://www.stopC51.comPress FactsEliminates the Ability of our Elected Officials to Protect UsSection 30(7) of Bill C-511. Bypassing our elected official’s ability to vote out laws that are not the willof, or in the interest of the Canadian people.2. Allows government agents, (not elected officials) to create binding laws behindclosed doors.3. New powers will allow enforcement of these laws by the searching and seizing ofprivate property and bank accounts without warrants.Fast Tracks New Drugs to Market; Reduced Safety Measures1. By shortening the approval process for new drugs.2. By placing the responsibility of safety on drug companies with a proven trackrecord of downplaying the health risks and side effects.Increased numbers of adverse drug reactions will lead to an increase inmalpractice and personal law suits against doctors who prescribe new drugs which
have not been tested properly for health and safety risks.University of Arizona, concluded that overall, the cost of U.S. drug relatedmorbidity and mortality exceed $177.4 billion in the year 2000 with over 200,000deaths created annually.Ernst F.R., Grizzle A.J., Drug Related Morbidity and Mortality: Updating the Cost-of-Illness Model, J Am Pharm Assoc. 2001;41:192-9Makes Upwards of 70% of Natural Health Products illegal1. At the current rate of licensing failure, more than 70% of natural healthproducts will be illegal.2. Broad definitions will allow government agents to invoke enforcement on peoplewho do as little as share a “therapeutic product” with a friend. Garlic and manyother foods are therapeutic products.Not “one” person has ever died in Canada because of a Natural Health Product.Bill C-51 is not about Canadian SafetyBill C-51 is about Big PharmaBill C-51 will allow binding laws to be created in secretIn Canada the law making process takes place in a public forum with our electedofficials voting for or against them. They are held accountable to the public fortheir decisions. If Bill C-51 passes, it will allow laws to be created behindclosed doors, by government agents who may not have our best interests in mind.========================================Bill C51: taking away your right to natural health products in Canada...Vitamins Minerals & Herbs Illegal in Canada? Bill C-51 (proposed changes to theFood and Drug Act): If you want to be able to take vitamins and herbs to helpmaintain your health, then it is time for you to act,…this outrageous covert BigBrother government maneuver must be made public and stopped. In Canada the lawmaking process takes place in a public forum with our elected officials voting foror against them. They are held accountable to the public for their decisions. IfBill C-51 passes, it will allow laws (with 'Draconian' penalties) to be createdbehind closed doors, by government agents (in the pockets of Big Pharmaceuticalcompanies and international trade groups i.e. NAFTA) who may not have our bestinterests in mind. For example1. 75% of natural health products will be unable to obtain license for sale,therefore rendering them illegal & discontinued.- all other Natural Health Products will be placed in the same category as drugs('therapeutic products') making them only available through prescription (i.e.'please doctor, could I get some vitamin C?')- either lack of products to sell, or the yearly fees per product ($300-$500 each)will put most manufacturers or distributors (except big Pharmaceutical) of naturalproducts out of business (i.e. 500 products X $500/yr = $250,000/yr!)- be sure and close the drapes if you plan to give your child an herbal remedy orhave some peppermint tea (see #2).- this is all being done in the name of safety, even though there has NEVER been adocumented case of death due to vitamins or minerals.
